Traditional casual setting for eating lobster rolls or hot dogs. Great outdoor tables by the docks and marsh. Bring your own beer and spend a great afternoon or early evening. No fried foods on menu though so forget the fries or rings.

We specialize in a fresh caught steamy lobster roll made to order. Also fresh clam chowder made daily, homemade stuffed clams. Not in the mood for seafood? Grab a nice hot dog by the sea and enjoy the view on our award winning deck overlooking the beautiful guilford harbor and long island sound.
